People’s Clinic says thanks

April 20, 2012 — The editor:

The Board of Directors, patients, volunteers and staff of the People’s Clinic express our gratitude to American Legion Post 126, its members and volunteers, for the Pancake Breakfast that raised over $3,000.

Each dollar will be utilized to provide medical care to the uninsured in Rowan County and nine surrounding counties.

Thanks to all who worked, starting very early in the morning, to prepare and serve the breakfast. It was a fun time for everyone and an opportunity for folks to visit with old friends and for some of us to make new friends.

We especially want to thank Post Commander Harry Clark for his leadership and support in continuing this third annual fundraiser for the People’s Clinic.

Each dollar that is received by our free clinic supports $36 worth of health care. All the care is provided at no charge to those who meet the requirements and is provided by volunteer physicians, nurse practitioners, physician’s assistants, nurses, laboratory technicians and clerical workers.

Again, to the members and volunteers of the American Legion Post 126, we want you to know how much we appreciate your support of the People’s Clinic and health care for our uninsured neighbors.

We are grateful to folks who bought tickets and donated extra money to the clinic. The People’s Clinic operates only on donations. Therefore, the viability of this needed service depends on the generosity of the community.

Thank you most sincerely.

Mattie Burton, Board Chair

Joan Wells, Administrative Director
